Reset the qbitTorrent pass


I can’t login to qBittorrent 4.6.5 running umbrelOS Version0.5.4 on a linux debian 11
I uninstall and install the app but same error Invalid Username or Password.

How can I change the password ?


Hey @umbrel_guy, thanks for reporting. We just recently updated qBittorrent to v4.6.5 in the app store with logic that should install the app with the default credentials of username = admin, password = adminadmin.

If you aren’t able to login with those default credentials after installing the app, then potentially there is something wrong with the script that assigns the default credentials. I will look into this and try to recreate.

In the meantime can I please get you to try the following:

  • Install qBittorrent. If default credientials don’t work then continue below.
  • SSH into your umbrel
  • Restart qBittorrent with the following command. You may need to modifiy the path if you have installed umbrel in the non-default directory
sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app restart qbittorrent
  • Try logging in to qBittorrent with default credentials

Please let me know if the above steps work for you


thank you

Excellent, great to hear. Thanks again for reporting the issue; a hotfix release has just hit the app store that addresses this issue so that users will not be required to restart qBittorrent.
